Check the following break switch first, then the seat switch, if that doesn't fix it take apart the main wiring harness under the panel with the ignition switch. Clean the harness well; I used contact cleaner, while it's apart put some dielectric grease on the connections.

If that still doesn't work, follow the wire from the electromagnet that holds the PTO lever in the engaged position, if you check the voltage with a voltmeter it should be 12v (don't remember the amps but it's low). You can also check to see if your electromagnet is bad using a cheap old 9v battery you probably have laying around. With the weak 9v battery it should just hold the lever in position briefly if you're not holding the lever. If not the electromagnet is most likely bad. Worst case scenario is you can wire in a switch to provide power to the electromagnet, but shouldn't need to do that. The connection to the electromagnet is
"Weather Pack Environmentally Sealed Connectors" made by Delphi Packard. There are several places you can get the connectors including amazon if you would prefer not to modify the factory connections.

SOURCE: john deere 2010 tractor. pto grinds and wont engage

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.

SOURCE: john deere gt 235 electric blade engagment but

One of two possible causes;either the PTO switch is defective or the switch for the reverse peddle is out of adjustment .The only other thing i have seen cause the PTO to shut down is a lack of battery power due to the machine not charging.

How to replace pto clutch on John Deere x320


Removal and replacement fairly straight forward, you just need to prevent the engine crankshaft from turning. This can done either holding the flywheel or using a piston stop. Also some clutches have a set of flats that a 1-3/8 open end wrench will fit.

When reinstalling the center bolt torque to 50-55 ft-lbs. Also make sure the anti-rotation device is engage into clutch assembly or it will rip the wires out at the first startup.

John Deere L120 wiring diagram


The electric clutch draws current while engaged. It is quite hungry on power which means that if the battery is low, the generator may not be making enough to charge the battery and hold the clutch in too. This is why the batteries on these machines are so large relative to say an ATV battery. I have several times experienced units with low batteries which started the engine OK but would not hold the clutch in. The battery may be getting old and not holding the charge. Try charging with a mains operated charger. Make sure to check water level in battery cells. Running them dry can ruin the battery.

Mowerdeck will not engage...


I own a similiar John Deere model (L130, 23HP with a 48" deck). I would check the electric clutch (called a PTO). To do this check the wires to this clutch and look for something disconnected. These wires (to this PTO clutch) should have twelve volts with the key on and the blades engaged.

John Deere 318 blades won't engage once it gets hot.


Check the clutch gap in the front of the machine (the one that engages the belt) by tightening or loosening three lock nuts around clutch. Tightening decreases gap/ loosening increases gap. Note: do not tighten too far as it will result in clutch drag or lockup! Stop when its just starting to touch then back off slightly. Also without a proper charge on the battery the magnetic power for the clutch is altered and not strong enough to engage clutch when hot. Find out why battery light is on.
